Working from home is possible with careful research.

Finding legitimate online at home work requires careful research. There are potential scams that plague workers looking for income opportunities. Therefore, you must use multiple websites to confirm where you can obtain legitimate work at home opportunities. The best way to get started is by looking at online search results and looking for unfavorable comments using keywords that fit your skills. You should take advantage of home work opportunity directories and use consumer organization reports to help determine the veracity of job offer claims.

Instructions

      Research legitimate online work from home opportunities using search engine results based on keywords that describe your skill set. Typically, writing jobs and call center type work are the most plentiful. To ensure your eligibility for certain work at home jobs, you should find out what equipment is required (e.g., dedicated phone) and how your workspace (e.g., separate room) should be set up before applying. One possible indication that a home work job offer is legitimate would be if the company helps you obtain special equipment necessary to do the job effectively (i.e., phone system headset).

      Investigate the history of each company you are interested in by looking at the websites of consumer protection groups. See what other people are saying about their experience with the companies you are considering. For example, the Better Business Bureau and other consumer protection groups may have a list of complaints against a company. Read review results and forums online as well. Most legitimate online work from home opportunities have some positive information (e.g., press releases, testimonials, etc).
